TRISTAN AND ISEULT Indie-Dyed Yarn on Sock Perfection

Regular price $25.00

Tristan and Iseult was inspired by the tragic tale from the medieval era. The colors are teal, chartreuse, several shades of blue, lavender, rose, and eggplant. I dyed it on Sock Perfection, which is a lovely sock-weight yarn with 450 yards per 100 gram skein. It has a nice tight twist, but it is still very soft because it is made of 80% extra-soft merino and 20% nylon.

Tristan and Iseult would look lovely with Mithril, Margarita, or Kristin Lavransdatter, all of which I have on this Sock Perfection yarn base.

PROCESS AND PACKAGING
Each skein of yarn is spun or dyed by me with loving care and contains a label with the yarn facts shown above. Your yarn is wrapped in tissue paper and shipped promptly, making a great presentation if you are giving it as a gift to your favorite fiber artist--even if that happens to be you!

HANK OR CAKE
Unless otherwise specified, your yarn will come as a hank, which is basically a large loop. This is the best way to store yarn because there’s no tension being placed on it. Before you begin to use it, however, you will need to wind it into a ball or cake or you will end up with a tangled mess. The best way to do this is with a swift and ball winder. However, you can use the arms of a patient friend or just put your yarn over two dining chairs back to back and wind it into a ball by hand. If you don’t have a swift and you plan to use the yarn fairly soon, I would be happy to wind your yarn into a cake for you at no extra charge. Just mention it in your note to seller when you check out.
 
MY GIFT TO YOU
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order.  Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
